A long over due finish

Happy Sunday!!

Do you remember this crazy looking guy? You might remember that my DD#2 asked me to make her a quilt out of this photo. It is Jorge Luis Borges and he is a writer from South America. My daughter told me that he is a "modernest" whatever that means. She wanted it at school with her. (She is a World Lit major). 

  She wanted it to look like a cubist representation of the photo of Borges. I just put the last stitch in the sleeve. The only thing I like about it now is that it is done.  I am happy to follow a pattern with maybe a small change. I am not a designer. :(
With that said here is Borges finished and ready to go back to school my daughter.

More later....lets go sew!

Happy Monday

We are making progress here on the medical front at least. DH got the boot off last week and is slowly increasing his walking. His return to work date is next Tuesday. DD#1 has been back to the Dr. and was given permission to start taking short walks outside. She was so excited. Luckily, the weather warmed up a bit so she was able to go out and enjoy her little walks. On the way home from the Dr. she and her friend went to JoAnn Fabrics. That was her walk for the day.

DD#2 is home from school for spring break. She has been very busy this semester so we have only seen her once since she went back in January. It is always fun to have her around. She is funny and has many stories to share about school, the roommates,and campus craziness.

We are hoping to have a craft day this week at DD#1's. It will be the three of us plus my sister.I  hope it works out. I know we will have fun. Probably will not get anything done, but just getting together is fun.

This is on my design wall. OK it isn't really a design wall, it is a flannel backed tablecloth that I hung on the wall. Hey, it works. My sister asked me if it was a crop circle. Someone else told me it looked like a huge paper plate. One of these days, a real design wall.....LOL. Anyway I am working on a layout for my APQ blogging buddies swap quilt. That is going to need a BIG label.

I am also pondering how to finish this. I just stitched the applique. The shop where I got the kit had made it into a pillow. I have been trying to think what else I can do with it. Maybe Liri will let Flit come help me for a day. My muse seems to be on  a long vacation.

More later. Have a great week and lets go sew!
